Bi-Annual Symposium: March 2016 in Sun Valley, Idaho
2016 Open Forum live: TBA at the Sun Valley Inn and in Boise, Idaho
Bi-Annual Laura Evans Memorial Breast Cancer Symposium
The 2014 Symposium titled "The Critical Aspects of Estrogen Endocrinology and Breast Cancer Causation and Treatment” brought 16 researchers from across the globe as well as 6 Medical Advisory Committee Members to Sun Valley, Idaho, for the week of March 12 - 16, 2014. "The Expedition Inspiration Annual Symposium is truly a meeting of the greatest minds in breast cancer research — the 'rock stars' of the field. It is a powerful event because of its singular focus on sharing ideas to move the field forward. There is nothing quite like it, and it exists because of Expedition Inspiration's mission and supporters." — Expedition Inspiration board member Kimberly Allison, M.D. Each year, in conjunction with the Annual Laura Evans Memorial Breast Cancer Symposium, Expedition Inspiration hosts a Free Breast Cancer Open Forum to hear from these researchers. The Forum is sponsored by St. Luke’s Wood River Foundation. "This Forum offered through Expedition Inspiration’s Symposium is a tremendous resource to the people of the Wood River Valley and beyond,” said St. Luke’s Wood River Foundation Chief Development Officer Megan Thomas. "The Open Forum is a great opportunity for the public to have their breast cancer and general cancer-related questions answered,” said Suzanne Pere-Mulenos, Expedition Inspiration board member. "In a survey of last year’s attendees, the Forum was found to be incredibly worthwhile, fascinating, and very relevant to the field. We are so pleased to share this information with a larger audience this year.” To view videos clips from the 2013 Breast Cancer Open Forum visit www.youtube.com/user/breastcancerei and access the "Open Forum 2013” playlist. "Though the researchers specialize in breast cancer, the Open Forum has relevance for all individuals effected by cancer, regardless of the specific kind of cancer they are surviving," said breast cancer survivor Suzanne Pere-Mulenos. "The progress investigators have made in breast cancer research has translated to improved treatment options for many, many other kinds of cancers."
